Michelle Rose Casey – daughter, mother, sister, teacher and friend – passed away unexpectedly on August 17, 2023. She was born on July 13, 1989 to parents Monica Rose Casey and John Douglas Casey in Turlock, CA.
Michelle was deeply loved by so many around her. She was a teacher and tennis coach at Ceres High School for six years, touching the lives of countless students and faculty. Her love of sports extended beyond tennis and she frequented baseball games (go Giants!) and football games (go 49ers!). She enjoyed the outdoors and loved having adventures with her two children. She had grit and determination, putting herself through college and earning her teaching credential as a single mother. She was perhaps best known for her dark sense of humor, love of black, and obsession with Star Wars (Team Darkside).
She is survived by her mother, Monica Rose Casey, her two children Wyatt Crouch, 14, and Elizabeth Miller, 2, her sister Emily Casey, brother David Casey, and the whole Casey clan who will miss her dearly. You can make a donation to support her children here: www.gofundme.com/michelle-rose-casey
Services will be held at Tuolumne River Lodge (2429 River Rd, Modesto, CA 95351) on August 25 from 4pm-6pm.
We love you forever, Michelle. May the Force Be With You.
